In his Law of constitution 1885, Dicey defined the Rule of Law in three concepts:
a) Supremacy of the ordinary law against arbitrary power
b) The equality of all men before the law.
c) The ordinary law being the basis of constitution
The rule of Law connotes the undisputed supremacy of law and envisages a state of things in which everyone respects the law and where law has to be followed by everyone collectively and individually.
It is a doctrine that no individual stands above the law, and that all rulers are answerable to the law. The rule of law can also be understood as the belief that there is a universal standard of justice, equality and impartiality, against which all governments and governmental actions may be measured.
The rule of Law stands for the view that decisions should be made by applying known principles or laws.
